Report Says Mo. Gov. 'Coerced' Woman To Have Non-Consensual Oral Sex

Report Says Mo. Gov. 'Coerced' Woman To Have Non-Consensual Oral Sex

He said he planned to remain in office and fight the charge against him in court, calling the accusations "outlandish and salacious", and saying he expected the report to include "lies and falsehoods". She added that he later invited her to his St. Louis home whereas his partner was out of metropolis.

Greitens, who was widely considered a rising star within the Republican Party, has been under intense scrutiny and faced calls to resign since he was indicted on a felony invasion of privacy charge in late February. The committee did not recommend any specific actions to take against Gov. Eric Greitens, stating that doing so would be outside the scope of their committee. Greitens allegedly said that if she spoke of the encounter, he would call her a "little whore". "I've seen enough. It's time for the governor to resign", state Rep. Richard Brown said. State representatives must now decide whether to impeach the governor.

"I have read the official report from the Republican led Missouri House investigation, including the sworn testimony".

The committee heard testimony from the woman involved in the affair, who has not been identified publicly and did not consent to the news of the affair being broadcast back in January after the State of the State address.

Witness 1, the alleged mistress of Greitens, said she saw the governor on a regular basis before their first sexual encounter.

According to the woman's testimony, she and the governor engaged in a series of sexual encounters in the spring and summer of 2015. The encounter happened before Greitens took office.

Calls for his resignation from his political opponants began anew ahead of the release of the committee's report.

Other Republicans to whom KCUR reached out to did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Hawley's Democratic opponent, incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill, voiced her disgust with Greitens' conduct, tweeting "I can't get my head around a man's character that would put his wife and children through this kind of pain", she tweeted.

"It is disgusting. This is not behavior befit for a leader in Missouri or anywhere else for that matter", she said.

The former mistress said Greitens pulled down her trousers without her consent. There is a partial gag order in that trial. Democrats have been running TV ads linking Greitens to Hawley. That probe came after media reports that Greitens' campaign had obtained and used a charity donor list in 2015 as it ramped up fundraising for his gubernatorial bid. The committee said it does not have physical evidence of an image or its transmission.

"This is exactly like what's happening with the witch hunts in Washington, D.C", he continued.

"In just 33 days, a court of law and a jury of my peers will let every person in Missouri know the truth and prove my innocence", Greitens said.

Mitten and Pierson also said the committee should continue its work and look at issued beyond those already in the report.
